At the end of 2015, a huge group of my favourite beauty vloggers were flown out to a tropical place by Tarte Cosmetics. Desi Perkins, Lustrelux, Chrisspy and beautybyhrush were all having the most lovely time, and nothing makes me more sad than obsessing over my favourite beauty bloggers in tropical places. *sigh* Though I was totally envious of the trip in its entirety, another thing I was totally jealous about was the winter collection that they all got to play around with before they were released on the website, and on Sephora.com. The new tarteist lip paints and the tarteist contour kit were released in that line, but the only thing that realistically caught my eye in that line, was the eyeshadow palette they came out with.
In 2014 (i think), Tarte released the “Tartelette” palette (right), and the palette that was the most recent release of the company is called the Tartelette in Bloom palette (left). The Tartelette palette was something that I had been eyeing from the start, but when it was released, I was running a little short on cash, and because I was under the impression that it was a limited edition palette, I had given up on ever having it in my makeup collection. My best friend Callie bit the bullet and purchased it so I saw the palette in an environment that wasn’t Sephora.I played around with it one night before we went out in the summertime, but I realized that I was only really using 2 or 3 eyeshadows, which means that there wouldnt be much value in spending $54 to only use 2 or 3 eyeshadows. But when the “beauty gurus” started posting about the new Tartelette in Bloom palette, I was in LOVE. The overall hue of the palette is much more warm than that of the original Tartelette palette, which makes it something that I would gravitate towards more often on a regular basis.
This is the first eyeshadow palette I have ever owned from Tarte, and I have to say that I am nothing but impressed at the amazonian clay eyeshadows. All of the blushes and eyeshadows are made with amazonian clay, which is proven to help in the longevity of the eyeshadows altogether…or so I have heard. A few of my favourite shadows from the palette are “smarty pants”as a transition colour, and “rebel” probably takes the cake for my favourite eyeshadow in the palette.
Recently, this has been my most used palette and I hope to get as much use out of it as I possibly can. I have a few future looks planned for my youtube channel with this palette being the star of the show, and I’m super excited to get them up for all of you. 🙂 I have a couple of looks posted down below, where I’ve already used the palette. Let me know what sort of looks you’d like to see me create with this palette, follow me on twitter or send me an email and I’ll get back to you as soon as I get it 🙂
